"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Like Romeo and Juliet and other doomed literary lovers, the attraction between mismatched entities: Terra (a soul guide) and Liam (her newest charge) was sweet and instantaneous, but against normal protocol in their otherworldly existence.
The author has taken many different ideas such as soul mates, reincarnation, free will, and a supreme creator and reimagined a world where guides look down upon the earth and help souls reach their purpose of common good for The One.
As the story progressed, I found myself reminded of Lucifer falling to earth and infecting humanity with evil because of the huge struggle going on between good and evil souls. Intent on protecting the love of her life from this scourge of evil, Terra follows Liam to earth when he is born and finds herself in danger as well. Terra may be the only entity with the knowledge to stop the scourge from infecting every living human. Will she be able to keep Liam safe so they can be together for eternity or will he be sacrificed as part of the bigger plan? I suggest you read The Corporeal Pull and find out!
One little thing: I wish there had been a kindle navigable table of contents for easy jumping back to review this or that scene. (That's where I miss having a paperback instead of a digital copy. You can't dog-ear e-pages quite the same way.)
Whether you believe in a higher authority or the existence of good and evil, this story will tug at your heart. Two souls linked by love must survive against desperate odds and find each other in a dangerous world. Terra is courageous and able to learn how to fight evil although she occupies a weak child’s body. Her determination and heart make us want to see her succeed, but the dangers might be too much for one heavenly entity as she navigates the underbelly of real life to save her soul mate.
This is a clean read without explicit sex or bloody violence, which is remarkable since there are battle scenes again evil entities. The author supplied a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, and I happily recommend it to any reader, young or old.
The story in itself is very well written. There wasn’t a moment when the story dragged and while I don’t care for abrupt endings the end of this story caught be by surprise because I wasn’t ready for it to end. I see that there is a part 2 to this book and I think once I get some of the others cleared away I will sit down and give that one a read.
